Dang. Thank you guys very much. That's a lot of mail to be sending.

I think I'm actually going to schlep most of it to the post office now, just so I don't have to do it tomorrow. The overseas stuff I'll do tomorrow, because I can't face customs forms right now. *g*

And then I should probably do some other work, but what I really want to do is bugger off and read a book and watch Wednesday's Mythbusters.


"one for my readers, the other for my readers, and a bunch of work for the post office which is down the lane"
Your post office is open on Good Friday?

Sorry, I thought Americans were religious. Clearly a cultural confusion on my part.
Why wouldn't it be? Schools are in session too, and the only place I've ever worked where it was observed as a holiday was a very small company with a Catholic owner.

We usually get Christmas off, but that's the only religious holiday that's federally recognized--and in America it's a secular holiday even for a lot of non-Christian folks, like me.
Here in Australia, we're in the middle of a five day weekend, thanks to Good Friday, Easter Monday, and ANZAC Day. Of course, we do have the tradition of Any Excuse For A Holiday (cf Queen's Birthday holiday in June)
We have that stupid puritan work ethic thing.
Seriously, bugger that.

Bugger that and go fishing :P
